    Need help with lang arts for high school student!!!

    Hi!

    I have an 11th grader with autism and a specific language impairment. He's functioning at about a 5th grade level (reading/comprehension) & at grade level for math. I would like to put together a lang arts program for him that will strengthen his reading/comprehension/composition skills without overwhelming him. He's currently only comfortable writing 1 paragraph at a time (very basic) & needs help pulling main ideas/important details. I read aloud to him and/or pair books with audiobooks. What I have now is ok but feels hodge podge/all over the place; would really prefer to have lang arts more streamlined. What MP resources should I purchase? TIA!

      I'm using rod and staff (writing and some grammar as needed), a phonics handbook, fix it grammar (application), ACE word building, random US history related books for reading. I would really like to find something that will tie some of these together so that everything doesn't feel so disjointed; it takes forever too & my son loses steam rather quickly.

        Have you seen SC Writing Two with the SC 3 American Studies set? We work on main ideas, details, comprehension, illustration, and composition with a chronological study through American history themes and biographies. (ClassicalSpecialNeeds.com, Level 3. This is advanced for Level 3, so it might work well for your son.)
